Fender Custom Shop Telecaster 1968 Vintage Custom Pink Paisley NOS


The 1967 Summer of Love and Flower Power movement influenced mainstream fashion worldwide, and Fender was on board with its new Blue Flower and Paisley Telecasters! These guitars were particularly well accepted by rockabilly and country & western players who were looking for something special, and were more popular there than with the flower children they inspired. Emmylou Harris and Elvis Presley guitarist James Burton has been playing his Red Paisley since the release of this model, and country superstar Brad Paisley transfers this tradition into the present while at the same time congruently the Telecaster model and his surname. These guitars have earned a special place in Fender history, and the Fender Custom Shop Vintage Custom 1968 Blue Flower and Pink Paisley models are faithful recreations of these iconic instruments.

These rare Fender models from the late 1960s are made in this way, that a paisley pattern wallpaper is glued to the body, which is then varnished on the body edges in a matching color and sealed with nitrocellulose varnish for vintage correctness. A Rift Sawn Maple neck is securely attached to the lightweight 2-piece, centrally-jointed alder body with the traditional four mounting screws and the obligatory chrome-plated F-neck plate. One of the special features of this late 1960s Telecaster models is the sycamore fingerboard, which is glued onto a prefabricated neck with a radius of 7.25" - 9.5". This round-laminated rift sawn maple fingerboard differs in response from the one-piece maple-necks of the 50s with a fast attack and more openness in the Telecaster tone.
The two Custom Shop Hand-Wound '67 Single-Coil Tele pickups, in conjunction with the threaded Steel Saddles with a guide groove for the strings, produce a very special sound that only Teles from the mid to late 1960s can feature in this way. Clear, warm, fast response with simultaneous pleasant treble reproduction.
It's always impressive the quality of Fender Custom Shop guitars these days!
